The map is super inaccurate or my GPS is really bad - I got lost depending on this app. Thank god we humans are tribal in nature! My sense of direction got me out!

This was nice and easy but oh Lord do you need this app to follow the two loops. I was constantly referring to the map through the app because we easily got off the trail three times and took minor detours. Without this map we would been walking a maze.

I did not like this “trail”. There are way too many side trails that make it impossible to stay on the highlighted path. Even when you’re on the only possible trail, the map still shows you as being off. There needs to be some sort of marker to show the way as multiple people I passed needed directions for an exit. I appreciate this for what it is but I dislike feeling lost.

A pretty legit and decent trail, it was a very comfortable temperature and since the sun was not out, there was plenty of shade. Some parts had mud in them and some fairly large puddles but for the most part the trail was very well-maintained. The however is that there were many branch off trails and it was confusing. Every time I took my eye off of the app, I got a message saying that I was off trail and I had to backtrack. This is the first time I saw a little baby snake on a trail in Washington… That was pretty cool!

For what seems to a small unassuming park in the middle of the city, this place has quite a few beautiful spots. A great inner city hike.

This is a great, dog-friendly trail. Lots of opportunity to wander off the trail without getting lost. the expanse is big enough that you feel like you're really wandering in the woods and not just outside the fence line. Highly recommend

Super confusing & hard to navigate the many micro trails crisscrossing the park. Meh.

Adorable trails, well maintained and in ear shot of kids baseball games. Seeing the water tower up close is pretty cool.

Interesting twisty trails it would be easy to get turned around in there. I am glad I had the app with me. I was doing it as a trail run which made it even easier to get turned around. A nice trail that I will do again

This is a very easy trail to walk, no big challenges. Pretty straight forward and kid & animal friendly. There’s a playground in the middle so your kids can play while you walk the trail if you’re a parent. If you’re looking for a challenging trail, this isn’t it...but it’s very convenient for some quick exercise.

Busy park but not very many people on the trails. Lots of spider webs strung across the trail. No markings on the trail and it is very twisted.

Contrary to other reviews I read, this was a very nice trail and the app worked perfectly and was well marked...I could tell immediately when I was off the path I wanted to take. It’s true that it’s not intuitive that the trail moves from one side of the gravel road to the other side, and if I were to make a recommendation, it would be to add maps along the path for those that don’t have the app or GPS isn’t working. One last point, I saw at least 3 people squatting down picking/collecting some type of vegetation into plastic containers ??? Seemed strange and not sure if it’s allowed.

It's okay for a neighborhood park, but I wouldn't go out of my way to go see it.

beautiful trail that you can take many side paths on. Bleeding hearts & other small wildflowers are in bloom so there's lots of biiiiig bumblebees flying around. bring your EpiPen if you are allergic to bees! bring hats & sunscreen bc there's lots of sun exposure in the back paths.

Nice walk in the woods. Should have brought a garbage bag. Litter near NW property boundary (watertower). Trails leading into shrubby area (scotsbroom and blackberry) are sort of dead end on private land (oops). Otherwise, great place!
